Cabrillo's Lesly Hernandez rolled through the 101-pound division at the Central Coast Girls Wrestling Association Championships Saturday afternoon at Pioneer Valley High School.
Hernandez, a junior, racked up pins in all three of her matches to win the weight class championship. Hernandez has been wrestling at the varsity level for three seasons now. She's 18-0 on the year, with nearly all of her matches ending on pins.
Hernandez pinned J.C. Rollins of Nipomo in 1 minute, 11 seconds of the championship match to take the title Saturday in Santa Maria.
Hernandez said that the cradle is her favorite move. That’s what she used in her first two matches Saturday. To get the pin in the championship she used a half nelson.
Last season Hernandez did not make it out of the first day of the CIF Masters Meet, though she did finish fourth as a sophomore. This year she's hoping to make it to the second day of the Masters.

Lompoc 34, Templeton 27
Braves head coach Claudia Terrones called this league contest a "poor shooting night, but great defensive night" as Lompoc held off the Eagles on the road Thursday.

Hancock wins opener
LOS ANGELES — Hancock's softball team made it 2-for-2 on the diamond in season-opening games Friday.
After the baseball team's home win over Pierce, the Hancock softball team cruised past L.A. Valley Friday afternoon on the road, winning 10-1 in five innings.
Just like the baseball team's win, the softball squad was powered by local talent.
Arroyo Grande high grad and current Hancock freshman Bailey Killough drove in three runs for the Bulldogs, Maggie Dasis and Nakaila Fuggs, both Righetti High graduates, drove in two runs apiece as the Bulldogs won their season opener in Los Angeles. Hancock travels a bit further south for Saturday's doubleheader at San Diego.
The Bulldogs struck in the top of the first inning when sophomore shortstop Larrissa Ostrander led off with a triple and scored on Fuggs’ hit. The freshman third baseman later stole third and scored on a passed ball to put the 'Dogs up 2-0.
Dasis then drew a walk, stole second and eventually scored on a ground ball off the bat of Killough to cap the three-run frame.
After L.A. Valley scored once in the bottom of the first, Hancock added two more in the second when Fuggs walked, stole second and third, and scored on a passed ball. Killough smacked a two-run double that plated Dasis and Emily Gantt, a St. Joseph grad, to make it 8-1.
Hancock added another in the fourth on an RBI ground ball by pitcher Shannon Peterson, and scored its 10th run on an RBI double by Dasis that drove in Ostrander.
